Illamasqua’s ‘Fight for a Fair Beauty Price’ Campaign

Today I come bringing you big news, a little bit different to the usual news we bring you that addresses an issue I believe we have all have had gripes with over the years. Inflated Australian cosmetic prices.

As many of you know, we Aussie ladies and gents are subject to beauty prices that can soar from 20-200% more than the recommended retail prices in the UK and USA. Things are set to change with indie beauty brand Illamasqua, who have recently decided that this has gone on for too long and have begun campaigning for fair beauty prices in Australia.

Check out the info below and sign the petition for fair beauty prices in Australia.

    This is great! I love Illamasqua but even then can hardly justify the price of some products

  • Reply ethereal Tuesday 7th August, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    It would be great if this works, I think the prices on makeup in Australia are completely ridiculous compared to the U.S.!

  • Reply MsKimo Monday 6th August, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Signed but I think it’s fair Australia has higher prices, it’s because of our economy and standard of living.

    But whatever, low prices ftw.

  • Reply foxoduck Monday 6th August, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    Agreed! I think the tax on these products is too much and of course we will buy online overseas if the prices were more competitive here. The same applies to electronics, books… the list goes on.

    Good idea

  • Reply donkeydior Monday 6th August, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    This is a great campaign and I hope we get some good outcomes. We have been ripped off for too long. But I hope it’s more than just a marketing strategy from Illamasqua because I don’t understand why we have to ‘commit to buying their products’. Can someone explain?

    • Reply adnrew Monday 6th August, 2012 at 12:42 pm

      I think it’s to prove to other brands that if there’s a cheaper option, you’ll go for it, and stop shopping with other brands
